im buying a new amp soon, i feel as though im good enough to get rid of this spider III now.

i play mostly punk and heavy rock/metal but 95% of the time punk.

wondering which will be better or one that aint either of these

either the blackheart handsome devil
or the fender frontman 212

or something in the price range of 300-400 dollars and is good for giging and practice and im no worried about effects but i need distortion

Do you really care about cleans? If not, I'd take a look at the Peavey Windsor Studio... should fit your needs pretty well.

If not, the Handsome Devil with an overdrive pedal would work, too.

not sure what tho, or even what makes a good punk tone....

Exactly. Hell, the Spider III insane channel might be a good punk tone...

He's got a Spider III already.

Oh wait, you were kidding. ...Right?

I thought punk was a lot of distortion and treble turned up.

I'm not sure if the Valveking can do punk. Maybe I should try. ; )

To a degree.

I have no clue what a good punk sound is.

Black Flag has a very sharp, flat tone, and Greg Ginn used solid Peavey amps.
